My son has done really well and learned a lot at Sonshine. He loves his kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Jewell, and really enjoys the school daycare. He has learned a lot this year and I am thankful we made the decision to put him in school early and that Sonshine took him. He was ready for school and has really flourished this part year. The curriculum and structure have been great for them. He also has learned to be kind and courteous to others. It is a great school with kind staff!

My daughter attended for preschool and daycare. I appreciated the structure and consistency of the program. Curriculum themes (seasons, colors, holidays, etc) are integrated with reading, pre-writing and storytelling, counting, art, and music (my daughter loves to sing the songs she's learned) and biblical stories. She learned about rules, consequences, manners, and personal responsibility: i.e. clean up, sharing, communicating, etc. and has made many friends. She loved her teacher and the day care staff, all of whom are warm, knowledgeable, gentle and supportive. And she came home happy and tired! Sonshine School was such a blessing for us and I would highly recommend it.
